No 39 for Kallis, now second behind Sachin

Jacques Kallis continued his classical form with the bat, notching up his 39th test ton, thereby becoming the second most number of Test century scorer in the world along with Australia's Ricky Ponting. India's Sachin Tendulkar tops the list with 50 tons.

Jacques Kallis continued his classical form with the bat, notching up his 39th test ton, thereby becoming the second most number of Test century scorer in the world along with Australia's Ricky Ponting. India's Sachin Tendulkar tops the list with 50 tons.

Resuming at 81, Kallis finally got out at 161, being the last man out in South Africa's first innings total of 362, displaying his responsible role in the Proteas' first innings. He scored the bulk of the scoring along with the tailenders as Indian bowlers, especially Sreeshanth went for the kill but were made to toil. Sreeshanth was the most successful amongst the Indian bowlers with 5/114 with Zaheer Khan (3/89) and Ishant Sharma (2/77) complementing the efforts.

India's reply was tense as Virendra Sehwag (13) and Rahul Dravid (5) returned cheaply. But Sachin Tendulkar (49 not out) and Gautam Gambhir (65 not out) prevented any further damage before taking the day's score to 142/2. With the wicket playing true to the batsmen, and expected to turn from third day onwards, India would do good to score quick runs on day 3 to take a first innings lead and put the pressure on South Africa to bat on a deteriorating wicket.
